Study, a poem


Some have deemed love a great weakness,
others will call it a strength;
I shall remain undecided
and study at greater length.

Surely one could spend a life –
at least a number of days –
seeking to learn every nuance
of love and all of its ways.

Say that it is work in progress,
as I test hypotheses,
thoroughly investigating
doings of birds and of bees.

But I should have larger samples,
new subjects would be terrific;
volunteer, please, I do promise
to keep it all scientific!

Light verse this time around (though pretty strictly metered)
